Purchase of any item advantage that cannot be gained through normal play. 

From the TSW website today -- it's been busy recently, and Issue 11 next month:

We invite you to join us for a whole Golden Week of great bonuses, brand new outfits and items with tons of bling and the Gilded Rage event! The event has just started today and will last until the 1st of April. You can enjoy the following all week long:

Double Ability Points

Every time you earn an Ability Point during the event you also get an additional one as a bonus. This effect stacks with the Timed Ability Point boosts from the Item Store.

Event Bags Full of New Items

You can enjoy all new bags filled to the brim with great new outfits, emotes, pets or items. These work like previous event bags, where the High Roller's Valise gives you an item while the Golden Bag of Lady Luck gives you and up to 20 players around you something from the bag. Use the bag around at least 10 people and you will be rewarded with an all new dance! Get the bags in the Item Shop now!

Gilded Rage Event

Hunt down the golden rampaging Guardian of Gaia. This monstrous Golem will roam the land and no place is safe from his wrath. Take down this Guardian to earn special rewards, which allow you to get your hands on the all new event bags!

Great Deal on Funcom Points

During the Golden Week you get 30% extra Bonus Points every time you purchase Funcom Points! Bonus Points are valid for 6 months towards any in-game purchase.

Bonus Points for Recruiting 

 For every new player you recruit this week you get $20 worth of Bonus Points (2400) in addition to the Veteran Points you normally get. (To get this bonus you must send   your invite between now and the end of the Golden Week and the recruit must purchase The Secret World within 30 days.) Everyone has gotten 10 extra invite keys as bonus. Remember that we now have a special Enhanced Player Experience Pack offer, which makes this the perfect time for a new player to try The Secret World!

90% Off on Golden Outfits 

During the Golden Week you can buy the Extra Heavy Metal and the Style and Gilt outfits at 90% off!

Yeah i didn't notice any change with combat. Its still crappy. You still have solo story quest that you need a team to do. Its a smoke and mirrors update. I have this one stupid quest where i have to defend some chick named Ami while she does some magic thing. The amount of mobs thrown at you is just stupid. If i can't do a quest that says its solo then forget about it. They said they would improve the starter decks which they didn't. This is also why i have a big problem with new mmo's. They were made by guys that grew up playing on consoles and not pc. In this game you have to keep dodging and rolling out of the way. They have mods that are just stupid to try and target. And they call this crap challenging. The pc controls are so stupid in this game. They feel so weird to me.And you will still be spending more time asking about deck builds than playing the game. Its not surprising the games player base is small.Its just not a very fun game to play. And the amount of points you need to upgrade your Tailsman is just grindy as hell. The best thing about this game is the game world. 

Every mission is soloable , though none of the missions are brain-dead easy..

The starter decks HAVE been updated and now use passives from non-equipped weapon trees, as well as some self-heals.  You also now must pick 2 weapons in the tutorial mission, so a couple of  major improvements there.

Logged in, game still doesn't run very well, choppy during combat on Medium settings.  High or Ultra was like a slideshow.

Also this is on a decent system,   x99, I7-5820, 16gb ram.

Try setting the game to use DX9.

My issue is these guys are experienced in this market. They have started on the cheap in the past and built it up to a product they were able to sell for a very nice profit. 

 

NOW, they want to pocket all that money they made, and get a bunch of kickstarter idiots to gift them the seed money so they can again build up a site and sell it off and pocket the money again.

 

Fuck that let them pay for the crap themselves.

Okay, let's get real here for a minute.  You have a staff of writers.  Who need to support their families.  The money is going to salaries to produce content for the site.  You against people making a living or something?  And 54K a year isn't that great for just ONE person, so you might want to just tone it down a bit there, bro.

Quite a few former CoH players have migrated over to The Secret World.

All TSW's zones have excellent storylines.  The preferences you may be hearing probably have more to do with preferences for a particular landscape.  Some like the deserts zones or the snowy Transylvania, some don't.  But the storylines and missions throughout the game are excellent, and imo, are the best available in an MMO.  The main storyline that carries throughout the game is pretty mindblowing -- the last part of this story in the Carpathian Fangs is jaw-dropping.

Now there is a bunch of endgame stuff in the nightmare dungeons and raids, but these are optional, and you can tackle them any time you are feeling up for it.  There is plenty of content that will take you time to play through as well.  Play TSW for the missions and the main storyline; you won't regret it.

This question is asked all the time over on the Steam forums.  Game population is good (not WoW numbers, but who's are?), and lots of regulars in game.  Here's a few threads to look over:

Yes, Polaris and Hell Raised runs happening all the time in Solomon Island. No, tattoos pushed off in restructuring.

ah, just read the entire thing. All is not lost and was essentially my thought on what they should do:

 

Many of you have asked us what's next. As we've been alluding, we are considering striking out as a team on a site that isn't beholden to indifferent corporate overlords. Those of you who are begging us to crowdfund might get a chance to put your money where your mouths are and help shape that idea. We'll be releasing more information over the next few weeks as we formulate our plans and will be using our social media feeds to communicate when we're ready. If we go forward, we hope you'll join us.

I'd subscribe.

What people cry about when they can't get something for free.

i would be more inclined to subscribe if they remove the 10% experience gain. The last thing i want in an mmo is reach max lvl faster and move to a different game faster.

One thing I like about TSW is the XP shake you get on subbing. Makes the XP boost completely optional. Also lasts only 60 minutes and has a 16 hr cool down.

Yeah I expect store owners to give me free stuff when I walk in. I don't know why they get so annoyed when I don't have any money. ;)

hmm a good point, not only is every game p2w but everything we spend money on anywhere, even a gas bill is p2w! :)

Eating is p2w too. First world problems.

Yes it is P2W. It's pretty straightforward you pay money, you have an advantage, which they do.

thank you! finally somebody who sees the light :D

So if i buy any game it must be p2w as i have bought the game so i have got the advantage of being able to play it

Every game ever purchased, subscribed to, spent money on in any form must be p2w?!

 

Do you think boosts are winning?

 

lol seriously come on now! This is enough surely

Lol. Yes it's unfair that all those people who bought the game are progressing in game while those of us who have not bought it are not progressing at all.  Certainly a p2w situation!  ;)

Pay in time or pay in money. Take your choice, but in the end you're gonna pay.

Why did I ever leave?  Oh yeah, someone offered me sick money for my account and I needed it at the time.

I played TSW from the day it came out but left long before Tokyo... long before.  I played a few titles since, most recently ESO and AA and on a day of boredom tried TSW again.  It may not be perfect, but I fell in love again and I'm still on the old content, haven't gotten anywhere near the new stuff yet except the scenario in Egypt with the train.. most fun mission in any game I have ever played.

 

Sole reason I stopped to play is that 1 single button mashing toolbar for active skills. Which in turn brings terribly boring combat.

Hmmm as you play, you are generally encouraged to be switching new abilities into the toolbar slots (the deck) as you get better ones, or try different weapon pairings.  You should hop onto the forums for some build advice or join the sanctuary channel for some in-game help.  :)

Give Secret World a try.  You can test out a free trial and it's got a pretty amazing storyline and setting.  Very different kind of MMO (modern day X-Files) theme...

Oh no you don't, let's get this cleared up!  An exploit is creating a situation or taking advantage of an unintended situation.  Which I did neither of,  Funcom said game was working as intended.

They created the game that way, i was mearly in the game.  I didn't have to do any tricks or find any hidden mistakes in the game.  

If your perception is not the same as mine, you're welcome to your dillusions.

After it was know what players were doing, they did nothing to change it.  You can still go in game and do it to this day as far as I know.

 

Like I said, my complaint is not about the game, but the way Funcom handled their mistake ( or not handled).

 

 

Are you saying that Funcom intended for players to go AFK in a zone so they could get points/currency for gear? Just for being there?

To me it always looked and felt like that was a conscious design decision until they noticed players hiding idle instead of fighting. I don't count idle as exploit in a persistent pvp environment.

It was never intended that an open PvP battleground be a place where you could hide and sit AFK to collect points that could be spent later.  If GMs found you were sitting idle for too long (and after sending you a /tell with no response) or running into a wall constantly or spinning on the spot for an extended period, you were issued a temp ban.  Perfectly and totally reasonable.  To think sitting AFK for in-game rewards is not an exploit is basically preposterous.

One more thing -- below are two really good threads to read over if you are just getting started.  Lots of good things to clarify -- TSW is actually quite different from many other MMOs, though there are certainly similarities as well:
